Chrétien de Troyes and the German Middle Ages

Papers from an International Symposium

Edited by Martin H Jones and Roy Wisbey

  • Description
Studies showing the influence of the French Arthurian romances of Chrétien de Troyes on German medieval literature.
The pre-eminent role of Chrétien de Troyes in the formation of Arthurian romance is reflected in the swift and brilliant response of German courtly poets to his works. Within a few years of their composition, Erec et Enideand Yvain were adapted for German audiences by Hartmann von Aue, while Chrétien's unfinished Grail-story was taken up by Wolfram von Eschenbach and brought to a triumphant conclusion in Parzival. In this volume a distinguished international team of scholars contrast the treatment and reception of the stories in Germany with their French originals.
